Coming from a family that some would call addicted to storytelling, Sally Russell began listening nearly twenty years ago especially for stories that bring the past into the present. Storytelling is an important vehicle by which we bond with each other in multiple dimensions and generations. Russell invites readers to consider their own repertoires of stories, what they can learn about and from their own family myth, and how they can share that myth to inform, delight and strengthen.
